Anette Kettenbach MA, LMFT (#MFC42215)
California Counseling
Location: Zurich, Wädenswil, and Zug, Switzerland, Singapore, & Worldwide Online
Phone: +41(0)76 778 98 70
Email: anette@calcounseling.com
Website: www.calcounseling.com
Nationality: German
Languages Spoken: fluent in German & English, poorly in Dutch
Religious Affiliation: Christian, Welcome clients from all Religions
Clinical Specialties: I hold my MA Degree in Clinical Psychology from California and I’m Licensed as a Marriage Family Therapist. I work with children, adolescents, individual adults, couples, families and groups. Here are some examples what kind of clientele I work with; clients with depression, bereavement, grief & loss, miscarriage, divorce, different anxiety difficulties, panic attacks, trauma, sexual, physical and emotional abuse, self-esteem issues, parent/child difficulties, parent education, couples difficulties & other relationship problems, family systems struggles, life transition, relocation & expat difficulties etc…
Cross-Cultural Experience: I was born and raised in Germany and moved to California at age 22. In the USA, I inquired my education to become a clinical psychologist and licensed marriage family therapist. In May 2006 I moved to Singapore and opened my private practice/company called California Counseling Pte Ltd. and worked there as a clinician and director. In October 2013, I moved back to Europe and kept my company in Singapore. I continued to see former and new clients worldwide on line via Skype or VSee and I opened a new branch in the Netherlands offering face to face services there as well. A colleague of mine is momentarily still running the Singapore office. In October 2015 I moved my private practice from the Netherlands to Switzerland. Since November 2015, I have been providing “in person” psychological services in Zurich, Wadenswil & Zug and I’m continually giving online services via Skype and VSee. Since I have been an expat myself for many years, I know what it feels like to move around, starting all over. It is normal for expat families to face many challenges once the first excitement of being in a new place has worn off. A person might feel dull or empty, sad, out of place, frustrated, angry, lonely or indifferent and does not understand what is wrong or how to find his way back of feeling content and happy as he used to be. In case you find yourself in such a place and you can’t put your finger on why you or a family member feels like this since your relocation, I do understand your struggles and can help to figure out which part of your internal world you have neglected and walk beside you to get back on track again.

Shane Warren
Location: Sydney is my home base but I work all over Australia, with monthly visits to Melbourne and the Gold Coast; as well I have rooms in Singapore and Hong Kong I visit every six weeks.
Phone: 02-8213-2442
Email: admin@shanewarren.com
Website: www.shanewarren.com
Nationality: Australian
Languages Spoken: English (and very poor Mandarin / Cantonese as I married into a Chinese family; plus high school French)
Religious Affiliation: I am very open to all religious beliefs as I was educated in a Catholic school, I hold theology training from an ecumenical base; but half my family is Jewish and my in-laws are very devoted to practitioners of Buddhism and Taoist practices.
Clinical Specialties: I work from a very broad base thanks to one area of interest being emotional resilience, an area I have been published internationally on, most notably the work I did with Drs Venkat Pulla and Andrew Shatte titled ‘Perspectives on Coping and Resilience’… My clients tend to be drawn to me when they are in a space of total loss and really needing some time out where they can explore the ‘what’s next’ option in their lives.
Cross-Cultural Experience: As a child my family spent time in many countries across Africa, Asia, America’s and Europe; so from a very early age I was introduced to different ways of living and thinking about things. Since 1994, I have practiced my work as psychotherapist, coach and leadership consultant from rooms in Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong. I am currently one of the preferred providers of cross-cultural coaching/training and repatriation support work for a number of multi-nationals who are shifting team members across the Asia-Pacific region. I have also had the good fortune to co-facilitate world leading training in for HR practitioners and professional coaches in the area of cross-cultural leadership development; as well as having the honour of co-publishing a book within this space alongside Prof. Jonathan Passmore titled: ‘Diversity in Coaching: Working with Gender, Culture, Race and Age.’
